forecast this morning is for a lovely end of the work week and
start to the weekend, though the later half of the weekend and
beginning of next work week may be a bit active with storms.
Satellite imagery this morning shows a large ridge over the plains
states, with a nice cool surface high oozing its way across the
central and northern plains. And, it is this nice seasonally cool
surface high that will keep conditions rather pleasant through the
weekend. For today, expect highs around 80, with 70s expected both
Saturday and Sunday.
Later half of the weekend and into next work week is when the chance
for storms returns. The first chance will arrive Saturday night into
Sunday, as a shortwave trough ejects itself from the prevailing
westerlies through the central plains. Confidence on how the
shortwave will eject through the plains states is a bit low (i.E.
The shortwave may move to our north or south), but it is sufficient
to warrant some chance pops Saturday night through Sunday. Then, we
wait for another widespread chance for rain to arrive Monday as
another trough digs in behind the leading trough that brought
Sunday's chance for storms. This deepening trough will sweep a cold|
font across the our section of the plains Monday and Monday night.
We will need to watch Monday, as currently the solutions indicate
any severe threat would be to our south, but that potential could
shift north. Otherwise, next work week looks generally pleasant, as
temperatures will wallow around in the upper 70s to lower 80s, with
on-again-off-again storm chances as the large trough, that dug into
the northern plains to state the work week, will stick around
through the following weekend.

low clouds will move into the terminals through the night. Expect
the cloud bearing layer to be rather thin, so there's a chance
that MVFR conditions will be intermittent rather than constant.
That so, expect more time of MVFR stratus around fl020 thanVFR
time. Same story prevails for Friday afternoon, but expect perhaps
more time ofVFR than MVFR so went with prevailing MVFR for the
afternoon and evening.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
